Freeheld (2015)

Julianne Moore won her first Oscar for a not-very-good disease-of-the-week movie that everyone has surely forgotten about by now. It was a frustrating victory for an actress that has been great for decades and has given far greater performances in at least a dozen far greater movies. Now, as if encouraged by this dubious honor, she has done another disease-of-the-week movie, Freeheld, less than a year later. But this time it's coupled with a prestigious "based on a true story" issue. read more...

Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

Director Satoshi Kon last year moved anime in a new direction with his amazing Millennium Actress. Telling the story of an aging movie star, he avoided the usual post-apocalyptic anime clich├ęs and invented a whole slew of new ones. Unfortunately, some clunky artwork kept the film from truly succeeding. read more...

Now, Voyager (1942)

Bette Davis stars in this compulsively watchable four-hankie weepie, considered by many to be a cult classic. Davis plays a shy, bookish nerd kept locked away by her hideously domineering mother. Claude Rains plays a shrink who takes her away and saves her life, and Paul Henreid plays the man who finally falls for her. But before anyone gets too happy, the mother (Gladys Cooper, who was nominated for an Oscar) re-enters the picture. Fans will recognize many of the Warner Brothers contract workers who helped make Casablanca the same year, including future director Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), who shot the film's montage sequences. Max Steiner won an Oscar for his score, and Davis received one of her 11 acting nominations. read more...

Imitation of Life (1959)

Douglas Sirk's best-known movie was a huge hit in its day, but was probably not considered the masterpiece it is today. On the surface it's a very effective weepie, telling the story of two single mothers and their troubled, troublesome daughters. Lana Turner plays Lora Meredith, an actress with big dreams of Broadway stardom. She claims to have morals, but she also lies to get work. One day at the beach, she loses her daughter Susie. An unemployed black maid, Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), finds her. Annie has a light-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane, and Lora assumes that Annie is merely her nanny, rather than her mother. Annie offers her services for next to nothing, and Lora eventually agrees. read more...

Rabbit Hole (2010)

Howie likes going to his group therapy meetings, shared with other parents that have lost children, even though the majority of them spend too much time talking about God. Becca gets fed up with these meetings, but Howie keeps going and forms a small bond with Gaby (Sandra Oh), a longtime veteran of the group. Meanwhile, Becca -- who quit her job to be a full-time mother -- has a much harder time being in the house, and looking at the myriad of reminders. One day, she spots the teenage driver, Jason (Miles Teller), who accidentally struck and killed her boy. She gets the idea to follow him and speak to him... not to blame him, but just to find some kind of connection. read more...
